frozen zoo is a cryogenic facility for the long term storage of animal and plant genetic material such as DNA, sperm, eggs, and embryos.
Additional recommended knowledge
Zoos such as the San Diego Zoo
and research programs such as the Audubon Center for Research of Endangered Species   in New Orleans are cryogenically preserving genetic material with the intent of protecting diversity in the gene pool of critically endangered species, or to possibly revive a species that has gone extinct. The preserved material can then be used for artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, embryo transfer, and cloning.
